3…2…1…The annual Pack 155 Model Rocket Launch is coming up Saturday, August 11 at the Windsor Sports Commons (Linde Fields) from 9 am to noon. All scouts, siblings and family members welcome to attend.
If you have not purchased or started building your rockets you may want to consider starting. There are different levels of model kits available from Ready to Fly (RTF) to build from scratch (Skill level 1-5). The Pack launch pad works on engines Mini and Standard engines size A,B or C. Some take a few days to assemble, so be sure to leave yourself plenty of time for the paint to dry! The pack will provide the launch pad, controllers and a safe launch site. All scouts, siblings and family members are welcome to launch their rockets.
